Photographer's Note

Back to Jhalong from New Mall......
This series which I have started with snaps of New Mall is my latest visit in Dooars during pujas. Jhalong valley is part of Offbeat Dooars- in the last three months I've visited Jhalong twice.
This time round I find the valley more green and more attractive in the monsoon rain.Looks like a picture postcard to me with the river Jaldhaka flowing in between.
Jhalong is a lesser-trodden offbeat wonder of Dooars Himalayan foothills.It is situated on the bank of Jaldhaka river on the way to Bindu in Kalimpong Sub-division.Jhalong is 103 km by road from Siliguri. It is best to go to Chalsa and then hire a cab to reach Jhalong in approx 2 Hrs journey.
